The triumphant return of the Cruiserweight division to WWE’s Monday night programming has given RAW some consistent and solid in-ring action it lacked for a long time. However, the only drawback thus far has been the occasional inability of the fans the fans to stay invested in the talented wrestlers who are relatively obscure to the mainstream fans.
There are episodes where the cruiserweights garner a solid response, and then there are those that elicit a dead crowd. To tackle this very problem, reports suggest that WWE is highly vouching for the return of former Cruiserweight Champion Chavo Guerrero to boost the young division.
WWE feels that having an established old-timer in Chavo would get the attention the cruiserweights richly deserves. Chavo Guerrero’s experience and the fact that he is a 4-time WWE Cruiserweight Champion further validates the move. If reports are to be believed, Chavo could very well be in for a substantial push if he does return to the company’s fold.
There is still no word on whether WWE has initiated any talks with the former ECW Champion regarding the return, but considering WWE’s way f getting things done, the negotiations could already have begun.
Chavo Guerrero Jr began his WWE career as part of the Los Guerreros along with his uncle, the late great Eddie Guerrero, and the tag team went on to win the Tag Team Championships while also being picked as Wrestling Observer’s Tag team of the year in 2002. Chavo’s greatest moments, though, were his contributions towards the cruiserweight division.
Chavo is possibly one of the greatest Cruiserweight champions in WCW and WWE history and his feuds with ‘Sugar’ Shane Helms (The Hurricane) and Rey Mysterio instantly come to mind when ruminating about his history with the title. Another notable accolade in his career is his ECW World Title victory against CM Punk, which he embarrassingly lost to Kane in eleven seconds at WrestleMania WrestleMania XXIV.
He worked his final match for the WWE on NXT when he teamed up with Darren Young and JTG in a losing effort against Conan O’Brian, Vladamir Kozlov, and Yoshi Tatsu. Chavo had realized that his WWE career had reached the point of irrelevancy and the third generation Mexcian grappler finally asked for his release on June 25th, 2011.
After a short stint in TNA, Chavo is currently working for Lucha Underground and a host of other independent promotions. Would you like to see him back in the WWE?
